Excellent. It was built with yasm - nasm extended for X86_64:

yasm -f elf -m amd64 -o common/amd64/dct-a.o 

Sadly it won't build with as.

FYI i sent to the yasm-devel list:

I'm trying to link x264 with ffmpeg on an amd64. x264 uses 
yasm for
some of its core routines. I've built x264 with -fPIC for 
and -m amd64 for yasm.

For example:

yasm -f elf -m amd64 -m amd64 -o common/amd64/dct-a.o 

Yet when ffmpeg tries to link with x264 I get:

relocation R_X86_64_32 against `a local symbol' can not be 
used when
making a shared object; recompile with -fPIC
could not read symbols: Bad value

Is there some other command line switch needed for yasm?

  rpm -q binutils
